Invitation / Call for Papers: Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation

31.01.2013
2. International Conference on Sustainable Building Restoration and Revitalisation – 2013

25th to 29th September 2013

Shanghai – China
Following the successful conference in 2008, we will hold the second session of the conference in Shanghai. We hereby invite experts and scholars in related fields to attend this conference and submit papers. During the International conference, there will be special training courses on historic building restoration.

Themes:
Topic I: Theory & Research
1. Research on guidelines and standards for sustainable building restoration.
2. Research in timber, masonry and earthen structures & restoration theories.
3. Traditional restoration techniques and innovative materials.

Topic II: Designs & Planning
1. Application of building physics in historic building conservation (energy saving, thermal insulation, moisture, acoustics, fire etc.).
2. Maintenance and evaluation of interior climate of historic buildings.

Topic III: Practice & Case-study
1. Case study on sustainable building restoration.
2. Restoration and maintenance techniques of rural areas.

Training courses & Company Workshops on innovative materials and technology
1. Design concepts for restoration by calculate-tools to describe the performance of the building before and after restoration
2 .Design concepts for building restoration include tests on site and in lab.
3. Application of class innovative materials for restoration.

Purpose:
The conference aims to promote research and application of the outcomes in the fields of historic building conservation, renovation and revitalisation at home and abroad by doing summary and reviews of experiences, to accelerate the application of novelty know how and innovative techniques to the management, renovation, utilization and maintenance of historic buildings as well as to strengthen in-depth dialogues and exchanges between professionals and practitioners.

Target groups:
Members of International Association for Science and Technology, research institutes, universities, government, engineers, architects, historical building preservation institutions, construction units, engineering companies, enterprises and associations.

Presentations:
Presentations should be closely connected to the above mentioned topics, attaching great importance to introducing new findings in building physics and building maintenance and restoration as well as reporting related research progress and developments; be focused on scientific fundamental theories and their consistency so as to promote the sustainability of construction quality and measures of restoration, which in turn, further facilitates the maintenance and preservation of buildings and monuments.

Abstract and presentation requirements:
The participants shall send their abstract (max. one A4 page) to the host committee via our conference website in Chinese or in English (deadline before 1st March 2013). The abstract should include following contents: the theme of the presentation, the name of the author, contact information and the outline of the presentation. Authors will be informed about further presentation requirements if the abstract is accepted. (The standard word-format you will find for download on our conference website)

Im Focus: Entangled atoms shine in unison

A team led by Austrian experimental physicist Rainer Blatt has succeeded in characterizing the quantum entanglement of two spatially separated atoms by observing their light emission. This fundamental demonstration could lead to the development of highly sensitive optical gradiometers for the precise measurement of the gravitational field or the earth's magnetic field.

The age of quantum technology has long been heralded. Decades of research into the quantum world have led to the development of methods that make it possible...

Im Focus: Computer-Designed Customized Regenerative Heart Valves

Cardiovascular tissue engineering aims to treat heart disease with prostheses that grow and regenerate. Now, researchers from the University of Zurich, the Technical University Eindhoven and the Charité Berlin have successfully implanted regenerative heart valves, designed with the aid of computer simulations, into sheep for the first time.

Producing living tissue or organs based on human cells is one of the main research fields in regenerative medicine. Tissue engineering, which involves growing...

Im Focus: Light-induced superconductivity under high pressure

A team of scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg investigated optically-induced superconductivity in the alkali-doped fulleride K3C60under high external pressures. This study allowed, on one hand, to uniquely assess the nature of the transient state as a superconducting phase. In addition, it unveiled the possibility to induce superconductivity in K3C60 at temperatures far above the -170 degrees Celsius hypothesized previously, and rather all the way to room temperature. The paper by Cantaluppi et al has been published in Nature Physics.

Unlike ordinary metals, superconductors have the unique capability of transporting electrical currents without any loss. Nowadays, their technological...
